A man owned a small farm near Wagga.
The Union claimed he was not paying proper wages to his staff and sent a representative out to interview him.
'I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them’, demanded the rep.
'Well,' replied the farmer, 'there's my farm hand who's been with me for 3 years. I pay him $500 a week plus free room and board.
The cook/housekeeper has been here for 18months; I pay her $425 per week plus free room and board.
Then there's the half-wit. He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about $100 per month, pays his own room and board and I buy him a bottle of whisky every Saturday night. He also sleeps with my wife occasionally.'
'That's the guy I want to talk to . . . the half-wit,' says the Rep.
'That would be me,' replied the farmer . . .
It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt - then it's bloody hilarious!
